Labrets "Fancy Diamond"
Labrets "Fancy Diamond"
Labret studs typically have a small size, limiting the options for setting colored gemstones due to the low color intensity of certain gemstones in such small sizes. However, diamonds exhibit a beautiful play of colors even in the smallest sizes. Colored diamonds are referred to as "Fancy Diamonds."
In our goldsmith workshop, we have set these colorful fancy-cut diamonds into exquisite bezel settings to create these pieces of jewelry.
The most common use of a labret stud is for lip piercings. In addition to this classic use, it is also popular for various ear piercings. The main advantage is the comfortable flat backplate that doesn't cause discomfort when lying on the ear, unlike a traditional earring post with an ear nut. Occasionally, it is also worn as a nose stud.
Characteristics of the Labret Stud with Diamond:
• Material: 18-karat Gold (750/000) available in White Gold, Yellow Gold, and Rose Gold
• Fancy-cut diamond, approximately 0.04 ct
• Piercing thickness: 1.2 mm or 1.6 mm (other thicknesses also available upon request)
Typically, a crucial criterion determining the value of a diamond is its color, which should be as close to pure white as possible. However, there are exceptions known as Fancy Diamonds. This term encompasses all diamonds that fall outside the usual color range from D (colorless) to Z (light yellow). Diamonds come in a wide range of colors (white, black, yellow, brown, blue, green, red, pink, or pinkish), with yellow and brown shades being the most common.
Natural Coloration of Fancy Diamonds:
Different factors contribute to the various colors of diamonds. Yellow diamonds owe their color to the presence of nitrogen, with the intensity of color determined by the amount of nitrogen present. Brown coloration results from structural defects in the crystal lattice. The element boron is responsible for the beautiful blue color of some diamonds. Gray diamonds contain boron and hydrogen within their crystal lattice. Green diamonds, which are very rare, get their color from natural irradiation. The rarest diamond colors are red, pink, and pinkish. Their color arises from internal structural defects caused by an absorption band at 550 nm.
Since not all diamond colors occur naturally in significant quantities, some diamonds undergo treatments to alter their color. These treatments involve exposing genuine diamonds, often pale brown ones, to various methods such as high-pressure, high-temperature processes to change their color.
To avoid confusion between treated and untreated fancy diamonds, treated diamonds must be clearly marked as such.
Design of the Labret Stud with Diamond:
True to the design of a labret stud, it consists of a flat backplate with a piercing post on one end and a bezel setting on the other, where both the diamond and the threading are integrated. The piercing post has a thickness of 1.2 mm or 1.6 mm. We can also craft the piercing post in any other desired thickness.
Material of the Labret Stud with Diamond:
This labret stud is crafted in 18-karat Gold (750/000), available in Yellow Gold, White Gold (alloyed with palladium for guaranteed nickel-free composition), and Rose Gold.
